KATHMANDU, July 10: Today’s Parliament meeting deliberated on various issues including predicaments and problems due to road accidents and natural disasters like flooding and landslides across the country.

Putting his view at the meeting, dismissing the reports of an incident wherein a healthy kidney was removed from a patient undergoing treatment at Manamohan Hospital recently, without patient’s approval, CPN-UML’s lawmaker Bamshidhar Mishra clarified that the kidney had to be removed as it had been bleeding excessively during a kidney stone surgery on the patient.

Some lawmakers have also demanded an impartial investigation into large amounts of money spent illegally during the local level elections and the trend of submitting fake bills for the expenditures.

Referring to incidents of menstruating women dying in banishment from snake-bite and other incidents in various rural areas of the country, lawmaker Bhesh Kumari Raut demanded that the government should take initiatives and create awareness to end such social malpractices.

Likewise, lawmakers Som Prasad Pandey and Tulasa Rana demanded that the whereabouts of four persons who had gone missing when a jeep was swept away should be found along Narayangadh-Muglin road. Tek Bahadur Basnet also asked the government to provide compensation to the kin of those killed in a latest bus accident at the location between Dang and Rukum and provide treatment for the injured.RSS
